Russia - EU: NATO EU jets intercept two Russian bombers flying south

Two Russian bombers were intercepted by fighter jets from four different European countries as they flew from Norway down to Spain and back again, it has emerged.

The incident, which took place on September 22, saw fighter planes from Norway, the UK, France and Spain scramble to escort two Tupolev 160 Blackjack jets as they skirted the airspace of each country. The incident has only now emerged following a report from the French ministry of defence.
